Summary:
Public Procurement Act. Provides that the Public Procurement Act does not apply to items purchased by public institutions of higher education for resale at retail bookstores or similar outlets operated by such institutions. The bill also removes the requirement for the approval of the Director of the Division of Purchases and Supply for cooperative procurement of goods and services which deviates from the Public Procurement Act and Division regulations. However, such goods and services must be competitively procured. The bill authorizes the Director of the Division of Purchases and Supply to delegate to selected and approved public institutions of higher education the authority to dispose of their own surplus property. Finally, the bill increases the cap on minimum purchases from $15,000 to $100,000 for which competitive procurement is not required, and removes the exemption for public institutions of higher education for the procurement of certain software.
